that we need to go forward in getting our economy turned around, in reducing our deficit in creating jobs. so i think when jim deminute looked around, he looked and saw a future where he would be standing by himself very often and likely face ago dwindling even greater dwindling number of tea party advocates and allies. i think he headed for the doors because he thinks that probably, as he said, the only way he's going to have a significant impact is through a think tank. >> to switch over to your side of the capitol the house of representatives, the tea party there seems to be playing defense. i know alan west, one of your close buddies was upset that he lost, he is gone. how does it feel when you look at john boehner the speaker republican leader and he knows every day that the tea party which had held him hostage the last two years the tea party in the house is playing defense, as well it seems. >> well, i was playing more than defense. unfortunately it feels like in the house the tail continues to wag the dog. you still seem to have a leadership on the republican side in the house led
." and brian beutler and eric bates. what's your take on this? how severe will the harm be to the economy if we do not have a deal by december 31st. >> the macroeconomic harm is not going to be that great. our economy is adaptable adjustable. these things take place over the course of a year. for some people it is a cliff. the payroll tax cut will expire. if you're a working person, you're losing $40 to $50 a week immediately in your first paycheck. the unemployment benefits will expire. if you're dependent on that, your income will fall off the cliff. if you're someone who listens on dividends and financial gains, the fact that tax on those will rise will not put a crimp in your lifestyle and you may not be taking any capital gains until june, july, august, september. those who are most vulnerable are those on the lower income ladder and who are benefiting from the benefits that will expire, they will feel like they're going over a cliff. >> eliot: brian, let me turn to you, politically am i not correct? the pieces of the tax impact that dan was just talking about that would have the greatest
of the largest problem in our economy, lack of equity, lack of demand. the middle class being squeezed, get the economy going. somehow we forget that problem. that's what trouble's me. >> that's exactly right. this is where i think president obama is doing a really good job staying focused on the fact that we have got to have revenue. they've got to come from the top 2%. that's got to be part of a long term deficit reduction program. if we don't do that, the in equity that you just spoke about, the maldistribution that is going to intensify the pressure will be there if we don't get revenue to make yet more cuts on revenue unscientific research, all those things that provide some minimum safety net bottom line, the president i think is doing a good job hanging tough on the obvious, and that is if you're going to get revenues from the top 2%, we've got to go back to the clinton tax rates. down the road, maybe make adjustments, but right now hang in there. >> i think that is exactly right. certainly last year in the fiscal deficit negotiations, we were upset when he caved in the end of the da
to go down. let's see what happens. >> whoa. >> wait a minute, economic activity and the economy boomed. clinton in 1993 did another tax increase. then it must have crashed right? let's see what happens. whoa, it went up again. interesting, right? then of course, we have a bubble in terms of the tech crash you remember in 2000. it went down a little bit, but then we had a tax cut in 2001 under george w. bush. after the tax cut obviously it's going to do much better. let's see how that goes. what? after the second tax cut in 2003, a dramatic dive down in the economy. when you look at this, it is obvious when the republicans say hey, if you do tax cuts, it creates jobs, we have a long record of that not being the case. when they say if you increase taxes, oh, you're going to destroy jobs, what are you doing? we have a long record of that not being the case. but none the less, i want to go back one more time to christopher cox in 1993. here was his prediction what would happen to the economy if we cut taxes: >> cenk: wrong again cox. so, they were wrong before, they're wrong again today. a

talking point that lowering taxes on rich people stimulates the economy. i have a degree in economics and my dad was an economics professor. and i know that it's the opposite. >> bill: yeah. >> caller: to stimulate the economy, you have to tax rich people who are just sitting on that money. they're refusing to use it to help the economy. and the government uses that money to put people to work, rebuilding bridges schools hiring people to inspect our food so we don't die from eating peanut butter or getting shots. >> bill: amen, amen. hey, paul, it has been proven, right? right, igor? we had eight years. >> in great growth and great jobs. in a consumer-based economy where people have to buy -- you have to participate in business for the economy to grow, you've gotta give -- as the president said, you've gotta grow the economy from the middle out. if the relief doesn't go toward middle class americans, if they can't participate in the economy, yeah, you're going to have a top 1% or 2% folks who do really

[farting sounds] >> stephanie: all right. >> fairy dust goes very well with bourbon. >> stephanie: republicans were quick to say that boehner's plan was attracting criticism from the right particularly from jim demint of south carolina, tea party leader and as such, represented more of a compromise than obama's stance. uh no! nice try. demint said boehner's plan will destroy american jobs and allow politicians in washington to spend more. oh, please we're not falling for this. they think if they criticize the plan, oh, well it must be a good compromise then. nice try! 29 minutes after the hour. spongebob squarepants tom kenny, our buddy our pal next on "the stephanie miller show." you know who's coming on to me now? you know the kind of guys w
i learned that statistic. we make 20% of the world's good for 10% of our economy. china is caught up with 40% of its economy. we have the advantage over china and we're more productive than germany and japan. it has to do with the free market entrepreneur where we value the assembly line and they're innovating and customizing product. >> six times the productive over china in the united states. that keeps us on par in terms of our output. that being said, 1979 you note in the book at peak we're what, amine, significant number of jobs. now we're down to 11-plus million jobs. how do we change that trendline? >> well, it's a challenge. the biggest challenge is the jobs that are in manufacturing now require higher kills. we need to have our community colleges preparing people to have the credentialing to have the operating cnc machines, operating programming skills that are going to be required for modern manufacturing workforce. these jobs are more competitive and they require more skill. i think that's one of the big challenges. >> gavin: so you value manufacturing why? why is it so im

an equitable way to increase revenue without killing the economy. that's my hope. >> jennifer: and so in all candor, as you assess the lay of the land and the republican party, there is, i'm sure you're seeing, a bit of the softening of the ground. there is a schism between those who understand what happened in the election and those who have -- are still clinging to the hope that they will be able to do this without raising the rates on the wealthiest. don't you think you're seeing a bit of a schism? >> i think you are. i think you heard it from john boehner the day after the election as saying, again the president won. elections have consequences and i think republicans in the house are recognizing that they're going to have to concede. the president is going to get more revenue but i will tell you this. i spent most on the day on capitol hill today. members are adamant they're not going to raise those two top rates, governor. that's where they're going to have to come together and say we need to be very specific about
saying, quote, if the president really wants to avoid sending the economy over the fiscal cliff he has done nothing to demonstrate it. but even as the democrats pound him from the left, he is taking punches from the right. the leader of the right's rebellion is, of course, grover norquist. he said the president has installed himself at loyalty, and boehner is not being sufficiently revolutionary. >> he thinks someone made him king. he doesn't have the mandate that he thinks he does. i think he takes us over the cliff because he has got blinders on. he doesn't see where he stands in the universe. >> jennifer: or where he stands? where the president stands? he's leader of the free world for goodness sakes. but back to the tea party senator jim demint, who was riding first class on the tea party express, he tweeted that boehner's propose is an $800 billion tax hike that will destroy jobs and allow politicians to spend even more. not so fast, demint. there is yet another front in this revolution. conservative columnist jennifer ruben dismissed demint's rhetoric and says the votes of demimi

goal is to let this country go over the fiscal cliff because he wants the economy to fail because he wants president obama to fail. john boehner, again, i think the worst speaker ever, it's a time for leadership, not for playing political games. american people have spoken. this is a time for leadership. i think if john boehner is unwilling to lead, we've got to put pressure on him to get the hell out of the way. fish or cut bait. get the hell out of the way. he has no backbone. he has no balls. he is a lousy, lousy leader. he is a looser. i think we ought to start putting the pressure on him. let's pick a fight today with john boehner. it's not picking a fight with boehner. it's just doing something to save this country. so, peter, how do people -- i call on you join me in call okay john boehner lead or get out of the way. >> peter: if you want to send him an e-mail speaker.gov/contact. you can send it to him. if you are on twitter >> bill: speaker.gov spiritists we are tweeting this as well. if you are on twitter he is tweeting @speakerboehner,
